The November parliamentary elections are only 30 days away. The big question that is being asked is, are you registered?
Voter registration deadlines are fast approaching in Florida, so ABC Action News has gathered all the vital information you need to be able to vote in the 2020 election.
You have until 6 p.m. Monday to sign up and vote in person and 11:59 p.m. register online.
Craig Latimer, the Hillsborough County polling officer, warns everyone not to hesitate. If you don’t know whether you are registered or not, go online and find out as soon as possible.
“Remember, October 5th is the last day you have to register if you want to take part in this election,” he said.
Over 922,000 people are registered to vote in Hillsborough County. Election officials predict this will be one of the largest, if not the largest, turnout for a single election in US history.
“We are the fourth largest county in the state,” said Latimer. “It’s a significant increase from the last presidential election.”
The county cast 381,000 postal votes. Latimer said they have received nearly 60,000 back so far.
“It is very important to register at least 29 days before the election to vote,” said the Florida Electoral Department.
